    PB 5xx original AC adapter re-cap & modern replacement

    I ended up replacing my PB520 PSU with one from a IBM laptop, and spliced the old 520 cable onto it... I kept the original PSU, but there's to much magic smoke inside for me to bother with... It's far smarter for me, to use a modern power supply.. New one is IBM 16v 4.5A...

    External HD PSU

    I’m going to guess 5V, because there’s no regulator.. I love small cases like this, because you can put a SCSI2SD in there, and power it from the SCSI buss.... As a matter of fact, if ya decide you don’t want it, lemme know what you’d want for it.

    PowerBook 520c will not power up

    Years ago, my 520 stopped working during the bootup... Really weird!!  I ended up splicing the cable onto a IBM 16V 4.5A PSU, and everything worked fine.  At a a later time, I cracked open the original PSU, and found a bunch of “magic smoke”.. I posted pictures on a different page somewhere...

    Mac Mini G4 & 110W PSU

    I have used the 110w from my A1176 core2duo on my A1103 G4 with no problem.... I’ve seen someone say that they are not interchangeable, but the 110w worked fine on the A1103, but I don’t think the 65w will last long on the A1176 trying to pull 110w..... I actually have a red tape mark on the...

    @Mk.558 My G4 mini is great!  1.42GHz, 1GB RAM, 128MB mSATA SSD.. Use a Apple or Kensington mouse for less problems, Bluetooth doesn’t work, and even the Logitech unifying mouse wont work... currently my Kensington mouse is better... Audio output is about 60% - 80% up, at all times, but I...

    Is PhoneNet better straight, or crossover.

    I’ve heard both are ok, but wondering if anyone knows advantages of one over the other... While checking my bag of cables, I found both, and it made me wonder..
